Suger Freak - Louisiane cooking in Astoria
Discovered this newly opened restaurant when we hung out with our friends who live in Astoria,
and you know how much I love my southern cuisine.
So we came out to Astoria on Saturday evening to check out Sugar Freak.
The restaurant had a lovely space and charming decor.
(Forgot to the memory card for the camera, so the cellphone photo would have to do.)
Gumbo soup- chicken and Andouille sausage stew over rice.
I love gumbo soup. It reminded me of Chinese Congee with more intense flavor.
Broiled Shrimp with okra rice
The shrimp was unbelievably delicious, but portion was small.
Buttermilk Fried Chicken with collard green
Fried chicken was such a safe bet. It was good, but not great.
I would get something more exciting next time.
Mud Pie - mix of banana, pineapple, and raspberry pie.
It balanced sweet and sour flavors, creamy and crusty textures.
The restaurant only opens for dinners from Thursday to Sudan.
The price is very reasonable, and the atmosphere is relaxed and homey.
Another great addition to Astoria expending dinning scene.
